Ever wonder what it would be like if you were a cat on LSD?  Me neither.  However, Friskies seems to think that taking your cat on a wild dance through fields of baby chickens at each meal is a key selling point.

If this looks at all familiar to you, perhaps you recall the extra-trippy Sid and Marty Krofft show HR Pufnstuf.  In the late 1960’s, apparently this was perfectly appropriate children’s programming:

Actually, come to think of it, this commercial perhaps more closely resembles the Mr. Show interpretation of good old Pufnstuf and his merry pals…

I think someone at Friskies spent a nice long weekend in the Altered State ofDruggachusettes…

  1. Ha! Friskies should just use that video instead. “Brainstorm!” “Magic!” “Cat food!” It would probably be more appropriate than what they're currently using.

    I think the idea evolved from the tagline, “Feed the Senses.” Their website has this whole experiential section where you can test out how things would look or sound if you were a cat. In theory, it's an interesting concept. In reality, however, it's just a freaky psychedelic mess.
